Selected EURAXESS Career Orientation and Development Tools


In addition to job offers for academics, EURAXESS offers numerous digital tools for professional orientation or career development. In addition to an academic career, this naturally also includes career opportunities in the non-academic (industry/business) world and even self-employment.



No limits: explore your career as researcher

The 'No limits' toolkit for researchers highlights resources to help you

  • identify what's important for you in your career
  • plan to build on your skills and knowledge
  • consider a wide range of career options
  • make a plan to reach your professional development goals

The toolkit includes advice, quizzes to help you explore your own needs and links to resources, information and opportunities.

Your future: a personal idea of your professional and private life

The Talent Development Suite is a tool to assist PhD students and postdocs with personal career development planning – including the private life. Unlike other existing career support tools, it does not evaluate researchers' skills and abilities, but focuses on a researcher's vision.

It is structured into four different assessment sections:

  • Future
  • Present
  • Past
  • Personal Journey Map
